  1. I love how jr. is playing the race card so early. "Don't vote for the white guy because they really don't care about you." Now if if Hill does the same in reverse , Obama should have nothing to say.

  2. THIS guy is a "co-chair" for Obama??? Wow! The Messiah Movement is in even worse shape than I thought! This video should be spliced with ones of Fred Sanford saying, "You big dummy!"

  3. Oh, please. JR mentioning that 45% of the Democrats of South Carolina are black and they have hope in Obama is hardly playing the race card. And no Democrat in their right mind is going to follow your advice, HEPHAESTION. To win white southerners in the primary you'd give up 10% to 15% of the vote cast in the fall general election--votes which always go as a block for Democrats? Jesse Jr sounded silly talking about Mrs Clinton's victory, but he hardly "pulled the race card". I'll tell ya' whose played the race card for decades: white southern politicians and Yankee ethnic white politicians, "segregation forever" & "NO Busing in South Boston!"-'member that shit?

    And I'm not even an Obama supporter...not yet.

  4. With all due respect, perhaps Jr. should refer to her as "SENATOR Clinton."

  5. Is JJ Jr. for real? Seriously, it hurts to see the two primary Dem candidates going so low to get the nomination. We have 10 more months to go. By Nov., we'll be a hugely-divided party in an already horribly-divided country. God (indeed needs to) Bless Us!

  6. I'm not sure if the singer in the Huckabee clip is a lesbian or a twink, but either way that Steve Perry bit was awesome.

  7. And if I may add, for the 8,763,726th time, Hillary DID NOT CRY. If there's anything right now that might be worse than hearing nails streak across a chalkboard or hearing Madonna sing, its hearing or reading that "Hillary cried." Good god!

    The whole things has been reported time and time again out of context, and it's been turned, twisted, salted and simmered beyond the real truth.

    Do a lil' research online if you want to know how it REALLY went down in that N.H. cafe. Or, head over to the New York Times to read an interview with the women who almost didn't ask the question in question. The whole thing IMO can be summarized as "a moment and display of genuine human emotion drawn by a question filled with pure compassion."

  8. Wow, Edwards did a whole interview without mentioning his role as a coal miners daughter.

    Jr's interview was a bit sleazy, looking into her crying? She didn't cry at Katrina? She's damned if she does or doesn't. Obama's comment at the last debate, "You're like able enough" sold me on backing Hillary. He is such a fake.

  9. Did JJ Jr. really say what I think he said? That if Hillary "cried" a couple of days ago, she should have cried over more things before. First of all, she got emotional when talking about why she was doing what she was doing - because she believes she can do good for her country - which I would assume means "crying" for all the other things than JJ Jr. wants her to.

    Another low blow from a man more than willing to use sexism, blatantly or otherwise.

    I'm undecided and have leaned heavily toward Obama, but these clueless men are making me angry - and have me considering Hillary more and more.

  10. Obama never appealed to me at all.

  11. Ok, this is ridiculous. These whinny, 'cry-baby' complaints that Hillary won because she 'got emotional' are pathetic and desperate at best. Your telling me that about 10 seconds of a broadcast in which the women chokes up and gets glossy eyed was enough to make people think, "Hey! The hell with the months or years Ive spent establishing my position in this election! I want a women who sobs under pressure as my leader!" Give me freaking break! She did not cry. Mascara stained tears did not trail down her face as she bawled and shook uncontrollably like an afternoon soap actress. If your candidate lost they lost cause their base wasnt there.

  12. Jesse Jackson Jr is a prick and I am tempted to say I won't support Obama if Jackson remains associated with his campaign.
    But I'll probably end up having no choice but to support Obama in spite of JJ Jr and Donnie McClurkin and other schmucks involved with his campaign.
    Why isn't Towleroad putting anything up on Ronnie Kroell, the super-hot gay contestant on "Make Me a Supermodel" who dated a porn star for several years?? Kroell is GORGEOUS enough to make me forget JJ Jr.'s schmuckiness.

  13. Fascinating --- it had ocurred to me that Barack Obama was getting a little "preachy," imitating a little bit of MLK, Jr. in his post-Iowa "speechifying." And, I thought he had started to sound a little like Jesse Jackson, too. Now I see why -- what a shame. With this sort of representation by Jesse Jackson, Jr. he is taking a terribly wrong turn --- a turn OFF, in fact. No, thank you.

  14. Obama is naive, fake and inexperienced and I also think irresponsible for trying to be our president with such little experience. Hasn't America learned its lesson from the last president we elected with such little experience? And I might add, Bush Jr actually had more experience when first elected than Obama does now.
    Jesse Jackson, Jr. is an asshat just trying to spin Mrs. Clinton's emotion because Obama's campaign knows that she genuinely connected with voters and pulled out the win in NH.
